AERIN Multi Color Duo for Lips and Cheeks: Review, Pix, Swatches

Aerin Multi Colour Duo Lip and Cheek

There is something so delightful about this Aerin Multi Colour palette for lips and cheeks. Part of the Christmas collection, Midnight Colour, it’s a wonderful complexion enhancer that I've fallen deeper and deeper in love with since receiving it at a press launch in December.

I found it tough to capture its subtle sheeny ways on camera but trust me, it's GORGEOUS! 

The shades, Warm Gold and Rich Nude, are ideal to sculpt the face, adding subtle definition, a touch of brightening colour and a certain fresh-faced dewiness to boot. It’s subtle, so if your skintone is darker than medium, I don’t know how effective you will find it. But for paler Celtic beauties, this could be the most prefect contour/highlight kit that you’ll encounter.

The gel/cream formula is gorgeous, melting onto the skin without feeling remotely greasy. Fingers are absolutely fine – a dab or two blends effortlessly across the face. Both shades feel lovely and, despite the silky texture, stay in place all day without looking patchy or interfering with my base.

While I don’t actually use it on my lips – though I am in the first few pictures here – I’ve found it truly is a multuipurpose product, as in addition to being the perfect cheek highlighter, the gold shade is lovely on the eyes. It gives a subtle, glossy sheen when sheered out on the lid and also serves as a pretty brightening highlight for the inner corners of the eye.

The downside? It’s spendy, at €38, and you’ll only find it in Brown Thomas. But it’s a thing of beauty in its gilded compact and, if it creates the illusion of cheekbones in my round, beach-ball face, then it’s worth every penny to me.

You look gorgeous on you. Coloured lips really suit you! I haven't heard of them before. I agree it is abit pricey but if you get longevity then maybe it would be a nice treat purchase :)
